America’s Age (in Presidents)

America’s Age (in Presidents)

America is only four presidential lives old, according to this story from The Washington Post, first published in 2015 and updated in 2016.

“When President Obama was born (1961), President Herbert Hoover was still alive (1874-1964). When Hoover was born, President Andrew Johnson (1808-1875) was still alive. When President Johnson was born, President John Adams (1735-1826) was still alive. And just like that, we’ve connected present day to the Founding Fathers.”

Still accurate as of 2016, though we don’t have an update for 2018.

Here’s how it looks. (Click on the image to enlarge.)

When Presidential Lives Overlapped

On the subject of presidents.

Thomas Jefferson disliked stuffy people, stuffy houses, stuffy societies. So he changed a few things. Law. Gardening. Government. Architecture.

Of the thousand castles, mansions, châteaux you can walk through today, only Monticello, only Jefferson’s own mansion, makes you feel so comfortable you want to live in it.

I think you will feel the same about his 18th-century shirt. Classic. Simple. Livable.

The J. Peterman Shirt (No. 2986). Made of 100% cotton. Generously cut.

(99% T. Jefferson. 1% J. Peterman.)


“I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing…”—Thomas Jefferson
